Abstract

The iThemba LABS recoil detector has been used to study exotic asymmetric shapes in Po and U isotopes. In these studies other reaction products which were not expected to be observed according to PACE (Projected Angular Momentum Coupled Evaporation) calculation were strongly populated. These products are as a result of other reaction mechanisms other than complete fusion reaction. The presentation will discuss the unexpectedly observed nuclei and the proposed reaction mechanisms leading to their creation.
